Transgender people aren’t having a hard time because they are transgender; they are having a hard time because society has decided that being transgender is a bad thing. People have drawn a conclusion in order to organize their own world and transgender people are caught in that crossfire. People bought into this negative view but we can opt out.
You are not a failure.
Just because you are transgender, does not make you broken- you do not need fixing. There is nothing wrong with you. You are a human in the wrong physical body, but with the strongest, most precious soul and I see you and you are beautiful.
You are not your thoughts and you are not other people’s thoughts. They can tell you that you are crazy; they can tell you that you are wrong. You can tell yourself that this is too hard or that you are not worthy of being the person you desire to be. Or, you can practice watching these thoughts come in and go out and let yourself be worthy of life.
Be impeccable with the words you speak about yourself and others because those words become the general consciousness of society. Every time you define, judge, criticize and belittle yourself, you are contributing to the creation of the same world that hurts you so much.
Perhaps we can not only have more compassion for other people but for ourselves. Today, tomorrow, and every day thereafter, that you wake up and decide to continue your existence, be gentle with yourself because you are brave.
This society has an obsession with gender and they’ve got it all wrong. Hate is just a by-product of society’s obsession to force gender into a strict binary. Your physical body serves to carry your soul. Your soul has no gender. Energy has no gender. Your higher self has no gender. Your existence is paving the way to less rigid, more accepting standards of gender and our culture just hasn’t caught up yet; you are ‘ahead of the times’ and people just need more time to grasp an understanding. This world needs you to be different. Otherwise, who is going to change the world?
Somebody out there needs you. Be the person you needed when you had nobody-for someone else. Love yourself unconditionally so that this world can be a less hateful place.
